How to finish leopardwood

Iím getting ready to start my first rocking chair (Hal Taylor design). After seeing a lacewood and Walnut design I decided to do something similar with Leopardwood. Iíve used Lacewood in the past on a box but it finished somewhat dull. It was a long time ago and I think I used danish oil on it.

Iíve scoured the internet and found a lot of different opinions on finishing Leopard wood. I just found this site and it looks very informative. Does anyone have thoughts on how to make leopardwood ďpopĒ and stay that way? it may also be good to know what you've tried that doesnt work?
